Mass. man sentenced to 4 years in NH prison on firearms charge
CONCORD, (AP) — A Massachusetts man has been sentenced in New Hampshire to four years in prison after pleading guilty to a firearms charge.
The U.S. Attorney's office says last year, federal agents were involved in an investigation of the illegal purchase and sale of firearms. They used an informant with New Hampshire identification to buy firearms for 20-year-old Jason Martinez of Methuen. Nine weapons were bought last fall.
Martinez pleaded guilty to conspiracy to make a false statement during the acquisition of a firearm.
The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
